Finally some shop time

07-28-2010 07:56 PM by Rustic | 4 comments »

I am finally able to get in the shop today. I went yesterday and picked up some screws that I needed for my PC router. (I lost the screws to the base plate) I ordered 2 sets(just in case). I spent some time yesterday edge jointing some smaller pieces for glue up. I found 3 pieces that I am taking with me to JockMike2’s tomorrow. I want to try turning something different. I am getting stock ready for a show in November. I am submitting the application on Friday to lock in my booth. The s...

Happy, progress.

07-28-2010 05:13 PM by BritBoxmaker | 19 comments »

Hey all. Yesterday was a doubly eventful day for me as my ‘Snakes’ cutting board topped 1500 reads. At the same time the ‘Zee’ box topped 700 in 1day. I am staggered, especially when I remember my first thousand reader took 57 days!. I’m really, really happy with this but I must take a moment to thank all of you who take the time to look at and comment on my work. When I joined LJ’s I never expected anyone would be this interested in my ramblings. Thank you...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #55: Back to "Normal"

07-28-2010 01:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It feels really good this time to come down from such a hard push. It is funny, but it takes a while to gradually sink in that the urgency is no longer there. I wonder if it is chemical thing in our brains or something. I am sure adrenalin has something to do it. I spent yesterday glowing in the aftermath of the previous couple of weeks. Much of the morning I caught up on correspondence in between applying coats of finish to my kitchen table. Miraculously, none of the cats decided to ...

Testing Stain with Charles Neil's Pre-Color Conditioner

07-28-2010 08:25 AM by Jimi_C | 3 comments »

I’ve had family in town since Friday, so work on the table has been put on hold for a few days. I did have time to test out Charles Neil’s Pre-Color Conditioner, which arrived on my doorstep Friday afternoon. This was a piece of poplar, with the normal streaks of light sapwood and darker brown areas (the corner facing the camera was pretty much very light in tone): You can click on the links to see a larger version of the pic (hosted from my home webserver, sorry if i...

Extremely Average #207: A Detailed Explanation of My Methodology

07-28-2010 05:24 AM by Ecocandle | 3 comments »

Hello LJ’s, It has been pointed out, and rightfully so, that I am really descriptive in every aspect of my blog posts, except my methodology. This is true and tonight I decided to give a much more detailed account of how I glue up a tiny box with 45 degree angled joints. I have lots of pictures and of course, a silly introduction. Tragic Error in Communications – Extremely Average Tonight’s post made me chuckle. :-) Brian
